    i've got a simular problem except mines empty and we haven't even used it yet. then the dog chewed a wole in this brand new liner. intex are not the most helpful folks most of the time. good luck with yours!!

    Buy yourself a vinyl pool patch kit (available at any pool supply store, and Walmart even carries them) for under $10. You can cut the patch to the desired size and install the patch under water. As long as you smooth out the patch and remove any air underneath, the patch will do the trick.

    You can take a look at this post for tips on patching a liner

    I'm here most days if you have further questions on liner patching 8)

    Good luck in getting those pools leak free so you can really get in and enjoy them
